  • "Great directions so easy to find."

    The property is beautifully clean and well presented. Plenty of information supplied about the local area. Lots of excellent places to eat locally and Morrison's supermarket a couple of minutes walk away provides all essentials. Many thanks for a restful and pleasant stay.

    Thank you very much for looking after the flat and for being such considerate guests. We would be very pleased to see you all again anytime. Now you know how much there is to do and see around here perhaps you might like to come for a bit longer next time. Very kind regards, Avis Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely time again on our second visit."

    The hosts were very welcoming. The only comment I would like to make - and it applies to every cottage we visit - there was far too many glasses plates etc which make it very difficult to store foodstuff. Altogether it is alovely appartment.

    Hi Margaret, Thank you for visiting us again. I will make sure that there is enough space for storing foodstuffs on your next visit. Very kind regards Avis Property Owner

  • "Hello Avis."

    Many thanks for the flat. We really enjoyed our stay and really only have some minor suggestions that may help you to improve what is a great place to stay. We thought it would have been nice to have a welcome pack. Also some of the basic food and similar items that you don’t want to have to buy specially just for a week would have been useful: e.g., salt pepper and vinegar. There was tea and coffee but for instance the instant coffee in the cupboard was over a year out of its sell by date and unusable. We wonder whether it’d be worth reviewing everything you provide in terms of food, removing the old stuff and focus on what people are most likely to need. Final thought: there are a huge number of glasses (enough for a huge party!) but not many plates etc. Which were rather small.

The property

Resting on the outskirts of the bustling town of Boroughbridge, The Gables is ideally situated for touring this wonderful part of Yorkshire.

Situated within the grounds of the owner’s home, this spacious property is within driving distance of a number of towns and cities, which are well worth a visit, as well as the countryside setting of the Yorkshire Dales.

Entering the property, make your way upstairs to the sitting/dining room, which enjoys a real home from home aura, offering a relaxing space to unwind as you flick on the TV of an evening.

The dining table is a great spot for everyone to gather around to tuck into a home-cooked meal that was prepared within the well-equipped kitchen.

Step into the kitchen and make the most of the electric oven, gas hob, microwave and fridge, accompanied by plenty of preparation space.

As the evening draws to a close, look forward to drifting off to sleep within one of the two bedrooms, both served by a family shower room.

On the ground floor there is a spacious king-size bedroom with a zip/link feature, whilst upstairs there is a standard double with a quaint Juliet balcony, which overlooks the owner’s garden.

If you do not feel like cooking one evening or are looking to celebrate a special occasion, make your way into Boroughbridge, where you will be spoilt for choice by the selection of cafes, restaurants and pubs that are awaiting you, as well as a number of shops for picking up the essentials.

Explore the area further by walking along the canal and the River Ure, where you will find opportunities for fishing as well a gentle stroll.

To keep you busy, venture to the Staveley Nature Reserve, where you can catch a glimpse of birds, otters and several species of orchid or head to the town of Harrogate and visit the famous Turkish baths, the Royal Pump Room Musuem and the Mother Shipton's Cave for a taste of the local history.

The city of York is also within close reach, where you can look forward to exploring the Shambles, a historic street with overhanging timber-framed buildings filled with quaint shops, as well as the Gothic-style Minster and the York Castle Museum.
